Cavani marks birthday in style
Edinson Cavani revelled in Paris Saint-Germain marking his 30th birthday with a “special” 4-0 thumping of Barcelona on Tuesday.
PSG took a huge step towards the Champions League quarter-finals with an emphatic victory in the first leg of their last-16 tie.
“For four seasons I have been in Paris and we have played some great matches, but this victory has a rather special flavour because of the meaning of this day for me,” Cavani told beIN Sports.
“It will be necessary to prepare for the match in Barcelona because football is beautiful because you never know what can happen before a game.”
Centre-back Marquinhos praised PSG’s defensive performance but still anticipates a tough match in the second leg in Barcelona on March 8.
